Three Towns hit by B&Es
The Franklin police have posted that they are currently investigating several B&Es (breaking and entering) that occurred in the northern area of town. Bellingham and Medway Police are also investigating several breaks under similar circumstances. The FPD state, “We have established a timeline between Saturday, August 6th at 9:00 AM and Sunday, August 7th at 8:00 AM. The vehicles in question are a white Ford Edge and a dark colored SUV; possibly a Jeep Cherokee. The operator is believed to be a male wearing a white shirt that would walk from his vehicle after parking a far distance from the target homes.”
Earlier in Medway, according a published news report, police were investigating three break-ins, all either on Oakview Circle or the Brentwood area. These were thought to have been committed between 5 and 7 p.m. Friday. Medway police said the suspect was apparently looking for unlocked doors but, failing that, would break a rear window.
And, in Bellingham, earlier, a similar situation was described by police, who posted, “We are currently investigating three residential break-ins that likely occurred overnight. The breaks happened on Arrowhead Road, Temi Road, and Rondeau Road. It is not clear at this time if the breaks are all connected. The homes that were targeted showed signs that they were unoccupied. It does not appear that this suspect would attempt to enter an occupied home. Additionally, there were also some vehicle breaks in the South end of town.
Police also referred the public to a doorbell camera footage of a person of interest (screen capture shown above).
While Bellingham Police have not identified or located the individual shown, they did have more luck with the multiple car break-ins reporte,d arresting a Providence many found with a backpack containing tools useful for breaking into vehicles and closely matching a description from a reported break-in site.
Franklin police are asking for assistance from town residents regarding the incidents here and are requesting anyone who observed any suspicious activity or anyone with a home security system that recorded useful footage to contact Detective Landry of the Franklin Police Department.
And, the add, that residents should remember to lock all doors and windows in the home when you are away and refrain from posting travel details on social media. Have someone check your home while you are away.
